Deanna lands in-demand job as Heavy Truck Driver after successfully completing training
26 Apr 2021
A single mother of two teenage boys, Deanna was laid off during the pandemic. She moved to the south metro to get away from difficult circumstances where she had been living and to look for new employment. Deanna had been a light delivery driver and was interested in getting her Commercial Driver’s License (CDL).
Deanne contacted Jim Sutton at CareerForce in Burnsville for help getting prepared for an in-demand job as a Heavy and Tractor-Trailer Truck Driver. There’s been a great need for truck drivers during the pandemic and the work pays well. In Minnesota, most heavy truck drivers earn between $20.50 to $28.76 per hour.
